Mosaic pieces.....

Today in class we grouted our mosaic pieces.  Ellen has a wonderful technique of using several colors and tinting the grout to achieve the look that you want.
Geez.....I came home exhausted.  Really drained.  Spent, I guess you would say.

Yesterday, when I came home from the all day class, I was also completely exhausted but I ended up doing a Reiki (energy healing ) session on 3 different people.  That's 3 hours of Reiki and afterwards, I personally was so energized that I couldn't even go to sleep.  
Today my daughter came over and I did a Reiki session on her for an hour and again, I feel completely revived.  Interesting thing, this Reiki.  :)

This is a flat piece that will hang on the wall.  I took a photograph of one of my Shrine pieces and applied the shard mosaic of clear glass over it.

And here is my Sphere.  Boy, it was alot of work!   And I was a bit sloppy in getting the glue on the glass and now I have to use a razor blade to clean it....But it's pretty, isn't it.

Here's another side.  I love the depth of the design and coloration.
Fun class and now I'm thinking of doing this process on my artdolls, on the gourd part.
Hmmmm.....a tree of this design technique would be fabulous!
